Workers go to work in the factories, construction sites or other
places of work to make out their living.
They work hard and some time even put in extra hours of work, for
which they are paid extra wages in the form of overtime etc. But no worker
would be willing to work in a place where he feels there is danger to his life.
It is only because accidents generally
take place without any prior intimation (they occur suddenly)-that workers accept
these jobs otherwise who would be willing to take the risk of one’s own life.
Taking undue advantage of the large
scale unemployment in the country, some industry owners exploit the workers
and jet work done from the workers in dangerous conditions.
This clearly means that workers are as conscious about their life
as anybody else is. Therefore, safety is highly, rather more important to
workers than others because the workers are exposed to more risk than others.
In fact, safety is the first concern of
a worker. Wages are of no significance, if there is risk to one’s life.
In order to safeguard the interests of
the workers our government has enacted many Acts/Laws to prevent accidents in
Even workers are these days aware of
their right to safety and they do raise their voice unitedly through unions to
press for their demands for safety.
It would be correct to say that safety
is the first concern of every worker. There should be exploitation of workers
on this account.
